Thanks for visiting the Blooming Grove Historical Society's Website!

On September Sept 28, the Blooming Grove Historical Society will highlight "The Underground Railroad and Blooming Grove" in a dialog session with local historian, Karen Frock.

Ms. Frock is researching the contribution made by many Lycoming County abolitionalists of the pre-Victorian years. These "conductors" facilitated the northern movement of African Americans through advocacy, hospitality, transportation and accommodations. Interestingly, Quakers and Dunkards shared many humanitarian and religious values: a similar churchly style, a personal spirituality, reformation history, a social philosophy and, in Lycoming County , the German Language.

Attendees are invited to stay awhile after the program and enjoy the museum housing many artifacts illustrating the journey and life events of these early 19th century German pioneers, generations of which continue to live here in North Central Pennsylvania. The Museum is open from 2-5 Sunday afternoons.
